Abstract

This paper reviews and surveys the available hybrid liquid-desiccant air-conditioning system technologies. These technologies are proposed as alternative to the traditional vapor-compression systems because of its advantages in removing air latent load, environment-friendly feature, ability to remove pollutants from the processed air, and ability to reduce electrical energy consumption. This paper first introduces the traditional air-conditioning system: vapor compression, vapor absorption, and evaporative cooling. In addition, the principles of liquid desiccants and liquid-desiccant dehumidification systems and the hybrid liquid-desiccant classifications are discussed. Next, combination of the liquid-desiccant systems with vapor compression, vapor absorption, and direct and indirect evaporative cooling units are outlined. Finally, conclusions and some important suggestions are presented based on the collected information.
